Stepson of Roy Moore Accuser Calls Story a Lie, “I’ve Known the Woman”


Reported By Kim Smith | November 15, 2017 at 1:29pm

Alabama senatorial candidate Judge Roy Moore has suffered a barrage of attacks from Democrats, including sexual assault accusations. On Monday, Beverly Young Nelson, 56, claimed Moore assaulted her when she was 16-years-old.

Beverly Young Nelson’s stepson, Darrel Nelson, posted a video on Facebook yesterday to tell America what he thinks of his stepmother’s claims.

“I’ve known the woman, she married my father many, many years ago. I’ve known her for a while now, and I truly do not believe that she’s being honest about this, he said.

Darrel said he did not think his stepmother was telling the truth and wanted to set the record straight when he found out what she was doing.

“I don’t believe it,” he said about the accusations.

“I do believe you’re innocent,” he said to Moore, adding that he believed Beverly was “lying through her teeth.”

Darrel questioned the timing of his stepmother’s allegations, explaining that she had been in his family for a long time and this was the first time he had ever heard this story about Moore. Acknowledging that he would probably get “some backlash” from his family, Darrel said he didn’t mind if it meant helping to clear Moore’s reputation.

Darrel also said that he stood behind Moore “100 percent” and would do anything he could to help the judge.

If Darrel Nelson is who he said he is, then his testimony could be damaging to Beverly Nelson and her story. Nelson is one of the several women to make claims that Moore was sexually inappropriate with them.

As it stands now, none of these allegations have been proved, and Moore has denied all of them. It wouldn’t be far-fetched to think that these allegations are an attempt to slander Moore’s reputation just before the special Senate election on Dec. 12 to fill current Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vacant seat.

Democrats have been known to play dirty before. Nevertheless, Moore will need to work hard to stop these allegations from hijacking his campaign.

O’Reilly Fires Back at Megyn Kelly, Shares Hand-Written Letters from Her and Gretchen Carlson

Hours after NBC host Megyn Kelly told her “Today” show viewers that she had complained about former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s behavior while they were colleagues at Fox, he brought forth evidence seeming to indicate the two had a very close relationship while they worked together.

“O’Reilly’s suggestion that no one ever complained about his behavior is false. I know because I complained,” Kelly said.

But later, O’Reilly posted to his website two hand-written notes from Megyn Kelly and one from former Fox host Gretchen Carlson. All three appeared to show that O’Reilly had friendly relationships with the two women.

In one note, which Kelly sent to O’Reilly after he attended her baby shower, she called him a “class act” and said she was “truly touched.”

“You’ve become a dear friend (no matter what you say) + I am grateful to have you in my life,” the letter read.

In Kelly’s other note, she thanked O’Reilly for promoting her husband Doug’s book.

“Thanks for the plug on Doug’s book. I realize you didn’t have to do that, especially after mentioning it already. I appreciate how supportive you have been of me over the years here @ FNC.”

Kelly’s sign-off on this letter revealed she even looked up to O’Reilly: “You are a true friend + mentor. XOXO.”

Meanwhile, in Carlson’s note, she wrote a poem to O’Reilly.

“Thank you for being the calm in the sea. Thank you so much for supporting me. Thank you for being my friend. It means the world to me,” Carlson said.

On Sunday, O’Reilly said in a statement that in the 20 years he worked at Fox, not one complaint was ever filed against him with human resources or the company’s legal department. But in her “Today” segment, Kelly said that a remark from O’Reilly prompted her to send an email to the co-presidents of Fox News.

During a November 2016 appearance on CBS News, O’Reilly said he was wasn’t interested in “litigating something that is finished, that makes my network look bad.”

“Perhaps he didn’t realize the kind of message his criticism sends to young women across the country about how men continue to view the issue of speaking out about sexual harassment,” Kelly wrote in her email.

Kelly said Monday she perceived O’Reilly’s comments as “shaming women into shutting the hell up” about harassment and assault.

Shortly after he was interviewed on CBS, O’Reilly tried to make his perspective clearer. On “The O’Reilly Factor,” he argued that someone who was wronged in their workplace should “go to human resources or leave. I’ve done that. And then take the action you need to take afterward if you feel aggrieved. There are labor laws in this country.”

But according to Kelly, “Women everywhere are used to be dismissed, ignored, or attacked when raising complaints about men in authority positions.”

She also extended her criticism to Fox News media relations chief Irena Briganti, who she said “is known for her vindictiveness” and publishes stories attacking Kelly and others.

Fox News responded to the allegation against Briganti with a short statement saying, “Irena is a valued colleague and she has our full support.”

Trump Supporter With Israeli Flag Gets Nasty Surprise at Boston Protest

A Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and an Israeli flag draped over his shoulders found out just how intolerant liberals can be during Saturday’s “free speech” demonstration in Boston that proved progressives don’t believe in “free speech” at all.

The man quickly found himself surrounded by an angry mob of left-wingers, including some members from the violent, alt-left group antifa. One man yelled at him to “Get the f**k out of Boston” while another yanked off his hat. The crowd surrounded him and yelled profanities at him as he made his way down through. When asked why he was there, the man said, “I want to show that people shouldn’t be afraid to voice their other views and voice their opinions.”

“You shouldn’t be afraid to go outside and say you’re conservative,” he said. “And it’s pretty sad that things like this happen.”

It’s hard to argue with him.

But it seems like that is what things are coming to in America.

It is a shame that this man could not peacefully walked through the crowd. Hate-filled liberals, especially antifa thugs, couldn’t wait to attack him. Antifa thrives on violence and hate, and it is sickening how the mainstream media has seemingly worked overtime to normalize them. The Washington Post and liberal network CNN have attempted to “define” antifa but whitewash — or defend — the group’s violence, proving once again how the mainstream media has failed to inform the public. Some in the liberal media have even attempted to compare the group to soldiers fighting Nazi Germans in Normandy. That’s a sick comparison — it’s also shamefully ignorant.

The D-Day invasion was an act of war, under the command of Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, who in turn operated under commander in chief Frankline Delano Roosevelt, the elected president of the United States. FDR in turn had the backing of the United States Congress, which had declared war on Nazi Germany. And Congress answers ultimately to the American people. To say it took place “without a permit” is to insult both history and the United States Constitution.

It also insults the truth about antifa.

Members of the “anti-fascist” group have stabbed a police horse, attacked police officers, and assaulted conservatives with harmful objects like bike locks. The mainstream media tries to play down the group’s viciousness, but in fact, antifa is so violent, it has been declared a a domestic terrorist group by New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security. (And aside from its currently Republican governor, New Jersey is about as Democrat as it gets.)

The public needs to know how members of this group shows up at demonstrations prepared to make trouble, because sadly, the mainstream media is going to ignore that.

Acosta Loses His Cool in WH Press Briefing Because Cameras Were Removed


Reported

For much of the past few weeks, the White House has been holding the daily media briefing off-camera with only audio recording permitted, ostensibly to counter the agenda-driven, play-for-the-cameras showboating that has been exhibited by some members of the White House media pool.

But CNN’s top White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who has a history of hamming it up at media briefings, has not been pleased with the new arrangement, and he let press secretary Sean Spicer know it on Monday, repeatedly and quite loudly, according to Business Insider.

Acosta was not called on but shouted a question anyway regarding the Republican health care bill, to which Spicer replied, “There’s no camera on, Jim.”

“Maybe we should turn the cameras on, Sean,” responded Acosta. “Why don’t we turn the cameras on? They’re in the room. The lights are on.”

Spicer moved on but Acosta repeatedly interrupted the event by shouting virtually the same question over and over again, like a child attempting to gain the attention of an adult.

“Why are the cameras off, Sean? Why did you turn them off? Can you just give us an answer to that? Can you tell us why you turned the cameras off?” repeated Acosta. “It’s a legitimate question. You are a taxpayer-funded spokesman for the United States government. Can you at least give us an explanation for why the cameras are off?”

Spicer continued to ignore Acosta and repeatedly attempted to call on another reporter, Travis Yingst of One America News Network, who seemingly took it upon himself to put an end to the haranguing of Spicer by Acosta, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.

“Can we get this out of the way? Can we address the cameras issue?” Yingst asked.

“Yes, some days it will happen, some days it won’t,” replied Spicer matter-of-factly. “The president’s going to speak today in the Rose Garden, I want the president’s voice to carry the day. So, look, this is nothing inconsistent with what we’ve said since day one.”

This actually isn’t the first time that CNN’s Acosta has lost his cool regarding the increasing use of the new off-camera format for daily media briefings. He called Spicer “useless” last week, according to The Hill, and the network also sent a court sketch artist to a briefing Friday to provide a picture in place of the camera feed.

Acosta continued his temper tantrum regarding the off-camera briefings later during a report on CNN Monday, essentially lying to the anchor in that “Sean Spicer has refused to take questions from CNN for weeks now,” according to Breitbart, though he clarified a moment later that “he may have taken a question here or there, over the last couple of weeks.”

Nevertheless, he persisted, and claimed, “We’ve largely been just blackballed during these briefings,” and added, “We’re just not getting questions to the White House press secretary … That would not have happened in previous administrations.”

While this isn’t the first time Acosta has crossed the line from being an dutifully dogged reporter to an annoying peacock strutting for attention, his antics at the news conference on the heels of CNN’s embarrassing fake news” debacle last week certainly don’t reflect well on the network. In fact, combined with Acosta’s whining remark afterward, they make CNN look like a floundering ship.

Perhaps if reporters would refrain from seeking their 15 seconds of fame or a viral YouTube clip during the daily media briefings, Spicer would have no problem keeping the cameras on every day.

But that simply hasn’t been the case, and whether there are cameras or even audio available at the daily briefing is entirely within the discretion of the White House. Acosta and the rest of the White House media pool may want to consider toning down their shenanigans and actually ask substantive questions instead of digging for “gotcha” moments on non-existent scandals every single day, as it has become truly tiresome.

Bush AG: Lynch ‘Betrayal’ Made DOJ ‘An Arm Of The Clinton Campaign’

The former attorney general under George W. Bush said Loretta Lynch made the Department of Justice “an arm of the Clinton campaign” by instructing then-FBI Director James Comey to mislead the public about the Clinton email investigation.

“What makes it egregious is the fact — and I think it’s obvious that it is a fact — that the attorney general of the United States was adjusting the way the department talked about its business so as to coincide with the way the Clinton campaign talked about that business,” Michael Mukasey said in an interview with Newsmax on Friday. (RELATED: Lynch Successfully Pressured Comey To Mislead Public Using Clinton Campaign’s ‘Inaccurate’ Talking Points)

“In other words, it made the Department of Justice essentially an arm of the Clinton campaign,” added Mukasey, who served as the attorney general from 2007 until 2009. “That is a betrayal of the department and of its independence to illustrate that clearly that the attorney general was essentially in the tank for Secretary Clinton.”

Comey testified on Thursday that Lynch successfully pressured him into using the Clinton campaign’s spin on the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. Lynch told Comey to call the investigation a “matter” rather than an “investigation,” Comey said. When he asked Lynch why, he said, she dodged the question, saying: “Just call it a matter.”

Comey emphasized that the order, “gave the impression that the attorney general [Lynch] was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way the political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.”

Comey said he complied with Lynch’s directive to use the “inaccurate” terminology because it “wasn’t a hill worth dying on.”

The former FBI director cited Lynch’s order as well as her private tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton as the reason why he took the unusual step of holding a press conference to announce the results of the Clinton email investigation.

Students Stage Walkout After MN City Votes To Disband Local Police Department


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/teenage-students-right-way-police/

Hundreds of well-behaved middle and high school students staged a peaceful protest Tuesday by walking out of their classes in Forest Lake, Minnesota, in response to the city’s presumably leftist-led council having voted a day earlier to literally disband the local police force.

As reported by local station KARE, the students marched out of their respective schools at 1:15 p.m. and made their way to City Hall, where they then proudly chanted “FLPD!” before eventually advancing into the council chambers. The best part about the whole event was that there was not a smidgen of violence or debauchery of any kind. It was peaceful and organized, in stark contrast with the depraved protests and riots preferred by leftist anti-cop hooligans.

Watch the kids arriving at City Hall in the video below:

Police Chief Richard Peterson was touched, to say the least.

“This is absolutely amazing,” he told KARE. “The students are fantastic. The community is fantastic. We are absolutely humbled by the support we’ve been given, really appreciate it.”

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the council voted Monday evening to disband the local police force of 23 officers and outsource its policing to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office to save $385,000 per year.

Speaking Tuesday morning on Fox News, councilwoman Mara Bain, who reportedly voted against the measure, noted that the $385,000 amounted to just $36 a year per household, which she claimed was an amount her constituents were willing to bear.

“Our residents have said we will pay it,” she said. “We will pay more.”

Thankfully, the efforts of Forest Lake’s students seemingly worked, as the city council reportedly withdraw its deal with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office a day later.

“This has been only the result of this community banding together and showing its … undying support for the police department,” Bain told the Forest Lake Times after the decision was announced. “This is a great day for the Forest Lake community.”

It should also serve as a crucial reminder to liberal troublemakers and rioters of what a peaceful protest ought to actually look like.

Shock Vid: Pretty Reporter Attacked on Air Covering Refugees… Anchor Watching Says “Oh, God”


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/reporter-attacked-refugees-anchor/

Coexist and welcome everybody with open arms, regardless of their background. That liberal sentiment may look fine on bumper stickers, but what happens when a group of people has absolutely no interest in “coexisting” with you?

A young television reporter in Italy just found the answer, but both her safety and worldview were put at risk in the process. Francesca Parisella is a corespondent for Matrix Channel 5, based in Rome. According to BizPac Review, she and her cameraman were covering a story about African refugees camped out at a Rome train station.

Instead of being welcomed and granted enlightening interviews, however, Parisella and her camera operator were forced to flee in terror.

“Their hope is especially to reach Milan … and then to move to Northern Europe,” the reporter began to explain to the camera while live on the air, according to a translation provided with the YouTube video. “It’s important to know that this reception –“

Parisella never finished that sentence. Her tone shifted to fear and an assault began to unfold.

You can watch the clip here (WARNING: Some viewers may find these images disturbing):

“What’s happening, Francesca?” asked Nicola Porro, the Matrix 5 anchor monitoring the live stream.

Parisella and the cameraman struggled to put words together while running away from the scene.

“They assaulted us, Nicola!” she exclaimed.

Her next words were directed at the people on the street.

“What do you want?” she shouted, still running. “What do you want? You’re crazy!” Then she screamed.

The crew back at the news station could only watch in horror as the incident continued.

“Oh, God, Francesca,” Porro yelled. “Get out of there!”

Parisella and her cameraman barely managed to escape unharmed, thanks to a taxi driver who reportedly pulled the pair off the street and into the safety of his cab.

“Francesca is upset but she is fine. They destroyed the camera and shook the operator,” Porro explained to viewers several minutes later. “Thanks to a taxi driver, if not, it would be a lot worse.”

“The police told me that I was very lucky,” the reporter confirmed on Twitter. Then, referring to the taxi driver, she added, “Roberto saved my life.”

There been no official confirmation that the people who attacked Francesca Parisella were immigrants, but her statements and the video of the incident strongly suggest that this was the case.

It is unfortunately not the first time — and likely not the last — that refugees have attacked people in a country where they are guests. Not long ago, a Muslim immigrant attempted to stab a woman at a camp in Austria. A similar event occurred in Germany. Here in the United States, numerous attacks have been carried out by immigrants and refugees from Muslim countries. A Somali refugee carried out a stabbing attack in Ohio just months ago, while a shocking terrorist attack that killed 14 people at a Christmas party in California involved a radical Muslim immigrant.

It shouldn’t take dramatic attacks on journalists for the world to realize a simple fact: Not all cultures share Western values, and you cannot “coexist” with people who see you as a sexual object, enemy or target.
